From the Mailbag

Here's a blurb from the Rocky Mountain News about three Shear Genius contestants who participated in the 303 Magazine Hair Show:

TRESS TROT: A slew of hairstylists from local salons teased and tamed tresses on models during the 303 Magazine Hair Show on Sunday at the Expo Event Center, 35th and Walnut streets. Stunning and shocking styles included mohawks, chignons, braids, buns, pompadours, updos, frizz and curls, with models accessorized with rhinestone eyelashes, hair extensions and - in some cases - freaky frocks.

The show featured style segments from Shear Genius 2 finalists, our own Charlie Price, Nicole Obert (even tinier in person) and Daniel Lewis (such a doll). Those three in the final four of the Bravo reality series were beat out by Dee Adames.

Price showed off his trademark glam waves - a throwback to the 1940s - with local lovely Holly Kylberg in his model lineup. Obert chose hot hunks with pompadours, slicked-down Yuppie 'dos and a gamine bob. It won't shock fans of the show that Lewis relied on his Texan background and penchant for big hair. In the finale, his models came out spraying hair spray.
